Lyric text selected by default upon navigating under a note?

Wouldn't it be better if text would automatically be selected when one navigates left and right between text brackets from one note to an other?

For example, I was editing a score I made in MuseScore, and, it would have been so useful had all lyric text contained within a text bracket that I had already written been selected by default, because, I had to write text over what was already written.

Thank you!


Isn't it going to be true at least as often that you just want to fix a typo, though, rather than completely re-type the text? Probably considerably more common, actually. And in that case, pre-selecting the text would then be less efficient. Either way, it's just a single keystroke to get what you want (Ctrl+A to select the text if it isn't already, Home or End to unselect if it is), so it's not a big deal, but I'm pretty sure the current system is more efficient on average.
